Time will show then.  I'm still not going to do convolutions in an
interpreter...  Actually I would agree for any reasonable compiled
language, where you can control caching.  I'm not talking assembler
efficiency.  The problem with this thread is that it started with a
smallscale startup project using persistence libraries and gradually
got into fullfledged commercial systems.  I'm not saying that you
cannot use hybrid systems for instance...  In a startup you don't
want to do that, so that was the basic assumption, for a commercial
system things are different.
